Shady Pass Road off the Entiat

Is this road passable at this time of year? I'd like to take a snow-free ride on the loop starting at 97 up the Entiat to Shady Pass and across to 25 Mile and back on 907.

Alternatively could I get across to Lake Chelan State Park via NF-8410 or Mud Creek Road?

Planning a gravel bicycle ride, so I want to avoid snow drama.

Thanks.

I sorta figured that too.

Have you done the "low road"? Roughly 4500' on 8410 at the high point. I've been over that stretch on WABDR, but my memory is blank, I was basically following GPS late in the day at the time. I sorta remember it was endless getting down off the high point into 25 mile, so I should have remembered it was plenty high.

I just have spring fever I guess, and a worry that we'll get closed out of these places early this summer for fire danger.

Did the loop from Ardenvoir and to get over there used Potato Creek Rd. which was a lot lower through devils backbone area, came back over Shady but it was late fall a few years ago. Actually started that day from my folks place at Lake Wenatchee. Was a 140 mile loop.

Ok, your right Dan, 8410 runs into Potato Creek Rd. coming from Chelan. Cant remember all those FS road numbers.

I tried riding over last May from 25 mile creek and was stopped about 1-2 miles from the summit due to snow. Even with the lack of snow this winter I doubt it's passable right now. Maybe someone who lives close by can go check it out for us

Dan, this year I'd expect the Mud creek and Johnson creek to easily be clear. South exposure on most of it.

No chance in he## that Shady is clear. Been many a ride through there when the top part is a sheet of ice. Not much fun sledding on a 325lb LC4....damhik.

WA Snotel is your buddy...

We were going to try Shady Pass on Wednesday, but decided for a lower elevation way through. I would not be surprised if you could get over Shady Pass or up to Sugarloaf. We went up Eagle Creek and over to Ardenvoir via French Corral and a couple of the feeder roads. Then went up to Steliko Lookout from Ardenvoir, and it was pretty dusty already. We dropped down to 97A via Oklahoma Gulch. We didn't ride Mud Creek and Potato Creek, but those would be passable in my opinion.
